Went for a business dinner. Steak was reasonable without being top drawer. So a safe bet without being special.

Had dinner here on my first night in Umhlanga. The waiter was a bit overwhelmed with the number of tables he had and got a little confused with the orders initially.

Dropped in for a business lunch with a colleague. Not particularly easy to find it via the front of the Holiday Inn but nevertheless an enjoyable experience. Service snappy and food healthy and tasty. Will drop in again.

Exceptional Meals at reasonable cost. The place offers a nice sea view eating space. The menu speaks for itself and offers such a variety that you can never go wrong! Mouth-watering meals!
